EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANCY

Education in the field of CAM is something we are passionate about at TMC, with this particular arm of the consultancy growing rapidly at present.

  • Camtasia / Screen capture recordings for student resources.

We also offer review for Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses in the CAM sector and have TAE qualified staff who can assist in VET validations.

Student Tutoring

In this growing world of technology, TMC has the capability to offer student tutoring services to both Australian and New Zealand students enrolled in bachelor degree programs focusing on naturopathy, herbal medicine or nutrition… whatever your location!

Utilising Skype and other communication applications such as Google Hangouts, we can assist you in understanding curriculum specific subject matter within your course, or grasp big picture philosophies or theories that just aren’t making sense.

Specific areas of focus for student tutoring include:

  • Foundational nutrition (macronutrients, micronutrients, nutrient deficiencies etc);
  • Naturopathic philosophy (Therapeutic orders, Vis Medicatrix Naturae etc);
  • Herbal botany (nomenclature, plant morphology, taxonomy etc);
  • Herbal manufacturing (dosage forms, weight to volume ratios, prescribing, child dosing etc);
  • Herbal Materia Medica (Herb names, parts used, actions, disease indications, cautions/contraindications etc);
  • Herb/nutrient/drug interactions (Physicochemical, Pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic interactions);
  • Herbal pharmacology / pharmacognosy (Classes of plant based chemical constituents, microscopic/macroscopic identification etc)
  • Clinical herbal medicine / nutrition (Case analysis, rationale and clinical understanding, sharpening prescription etc)
  • Bioscience / Health Science based subjects (Clinical pathology, symptomatology, anatomy & physiology etc).

It should be made clear that this service does not assist in completing formal submittable assessment pieces such as assignments, but can assist in preparing students for final exams by assisting in the development of good study habits, providing educational resources and developing critical thinking skills.

Tutoring rates are $40 per hour, or $70 for two hours. You must provide an email detailing and providing the material you wish to cover 24-48 hours before the booking. Subject outlines are helpful to see what learning outcomes are needed, so are a useful resource for our staff to ensure you are covering the appropriate subject matter.

Technical / Academic Writing

Technical assistance in academic and professional writing is also a service offered at TMC, more specifically tailored for those students struggling with writing more advanced academic pieces or for those wanting to publish or write for articles or journals. We also have a staff member trained in editing, proof-reading and publishing, so for those struggling with grammar or punctuation, this can be a great assistance (not offered for formal assessment pieces).

Referencing of academic work is another factor that many people struggle with, and is just another topic we can assist you with should other avenues not be working for you. For more information on these services, send an email to office@tmconsultancy.com.au outlining your requirements and timeframes and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
